First Interstate Bank of Newport Presented with Check for $2,409 to Purchase Shades to Shield Classroom from View

Posted on June 6, 2019

Trevor Brittsan, manager of the Newport branch of First Interstate Bank, presented a check to the Lincoln County School District designated for the purchase of Lockdown Blackout Shades for Sam Case and Yaquina View Elementary Schools in Newport. The principal of Sam Case, Shelley Moore, and principal of Yaquina View, Kristin Becker, met Mr. Brittsan at  Sam Case to receive a check worth $2,409 and to show Mr. Brittsan one of the classrooms which were in need of a shade which can be quickly extended if necessary to shield a classroom from view.

These are the same shades that Mo’s Restaurant so generously donated earlier this school year for all the Lincoln City Schools.
The shades are custom made to fit the various sizes of our interior classroom door windows. They are fire retardant and super easy to deploy. They stay in the up (open) position except during a code red lockdown.  LCSD Facilities & Maintenance team does the installation.
We have applied for a grant from the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for shades for the remaining schools. We’ll find out in July if we receive that grant.
Above is a picture of the shades at Oceanlake Elementary School.
